Sibling Rivalry...

Do you have sibling rivalry going on in your daily lives between your children? Why can’t they just get along? Does it seem that they are jealous, or trying to compete for your attention?

Sibling Rivalry happens in some cases right after the second child is born, and it very well might continue throughout their childhood. Don’t be alarmed, you can work through this.

Your children are trying to find his or her own voice, and if they feel their voice is not being heard; because of the other sibling; then it can turn into a rivalry.

Parents try to give each child your undivided attention: Try to give your child their own special day, or their own special time. Your child wants to share with you their own special talents and success that they have done.

Just remember you don’t ever want to label them; don’t play favorites. You love them both equally, you need to always keep in mind that they need to know how much you do.
